Sound Quality: 4 of 5 stars. Really great stuff. Super clear, crisp, the instruments come through really well and there is some light chit-chat from the audience between songs, but a great sound! just a tiny coffee shop and the clink of glasses..
Show Quality: 4 of 5 stars. I had never heard the watkins family hour before but was recommended to anything nickle creek / watkins / mutual admiration society... Watkins family hour is the brother and sister from nickle creek. it has a fun feel.. kinda bluegrass, other times flamanco, it is a fiddle and guitar .... really amazing performance, fun stuff i'll have to download more! check out 'Cherokee shuffle' and 'Ferdiand the bull'. Also, Peter Sprague is a local classical guitar legend here in san diego (Carlsbad).. so that was a cool treat to see on the setlist!
